Nobody ever said getting back into shape after having a baby would be a pirouette in the park. Even for the most physically fit. But for dancer-choreographer Regina Klenjoski, the task was doubly daunting. Not only were the birthing adventure and its aftereffects exhausting for her -- but they were also an injunction to go deeper as an artist.

The L.A. Dance Festival materialized in early 2012 out of a frankly chauvinistic fervor to highlight the best homegrown companies together in performance. In unity there is strength, the thinking goes -- although sampler programs, with their 10-minute snatches of choreography, have inherent weaknesses. It was as though festival founder Deborah Brockus was trying to stage a counterattack against the tsunami of excitement generated by Benjamin Millepied's Music Center-supported L.A. Dance Project.

It didn't take long to realize that locally based choreographer Regina Klenjoski set her sights on sweepy, swirly, swoopy overkill at the John Anson Ford Amphitheatre on Friday -- to the near-complete exclusion of any forthright, purposeful, deeply felt modern dance. Whatever ideas or feelings had inspired her three works had long since been buried under an avalanche of diversionary steps.

Regina Klenjoski and Monica Favand are two of the most active and ambitious dance makers leading Southland contemporary companies: sometimes stumbling creatively but always out there presenting work and exploring new directions.

What purpose does a bitterly sarcastic critique of a local professional dance company serve? ["Choreography Steps Over Its Own Feelings" by Lewis Segal, Aug. 9.] Just the day before, Segal wrote of the [dwindling] funding of arts in Los Angeles and its effect on the dance community. In his very next article, he personally attacked the artistic sensibilities of choreographer-dancer Regina Klenjoski, a longtime contributor to the L.A. dance community. Not only has Klenjoski sustained a company since 1999 (now regularly employing six dancers)

Stylish is the word that comes to mind when it comes to choreographer Regina Klenjoski's production of "Original Sin," which was actually a seven-part essay on the famous Seven Deadly Sins. On Friday night at the James R. Armstrong Theatre in Torrance, excellent dancing and design elements strongly supported a piece that otherwise depended largely on familiar movement themes and one-note concepts for its evocation of sin.

An 11-year-old Serbian child describes the brutalities of war in diary entries that condition the increasingly agonized choreography of "Dear Mimmy," the longest and most ambitious dance drama on an unrelievedly intense program by the Regina Klenjoski Dance Company at Highways Performance Space in Santa Monica on Thursday.

While the rain may have kept many Angelenos away from the second annual Sola Contemporary Dance Festival held over the weekend at James Armstrong Theatre in Torrance, spirits were far from dampened. As Regina Klenjoski, artistic director of Regina Klenjoski Dance Company and producer of the event, noted, the purpose of presenting 10 emerging contemporary choreographers was to break boundaries and shape the future of dance in Los Angeles.

The eclectic list of winners of this year's Lester Horton Dance Awards, announced Sunday, included achievement-in-performance nods to Patrick Damon Rago for his evening-length piece "Manifold" and to Holly Johnston, choreographer and artistic director of the Ledges and Bones Dance Project, for "experiment one." The award for outstanding achievement in performance by a dance company went to break-dance veteran Jacob "Kujo" Lyons' interdisciplinary dance and physical theater troupe Lux Aeterna for two works: "Underwater" -- which was indeed performed underwater -- and "Beached."
